Knob Creek Cask Strength Rye Whiskey
The second edition of Knob Creek cask strength rye, this takes their already award winning rye whiskey, and showcases it uncut, at full barrel strength, in this case 63.5% abv.
The nose finds cinnamon, confectionary sweetness, white pepper, green apple, and honey all sitting above a fiery bunch of red hot candies. The proof is very apparent. This is not for the faint of heart, but rather a big spicy rye for big spicy rye people. The cinnamon and pepper carry through on the palate, along with a snickerdoodle sweetness, burnt espresso, and green apple. It's oily, medium bodied, and tingly spicy throughout. The finish has a wonderful dirty, farm-y, earthy element, alongside menthol and more cinnamon.
